We're delighted to present a second EP from Finnish artist Planet Boelex, following his first release for Monotonik in the form of the 'Sinking In The Soup EP'. Boelex is also known as long-time .MOD artist Tweeter, a noted alumni of early labels such as Voodoo, and continues to delight allcomers with his beautifully composed, wonderfully melodic idm sound - oddly retro, but somehow still relevant.
The 'Second Thoughts EP' starts with the slow build of 'Shower Curtain', all shimmering melody and regular, gorgeously staged, before 'Windbreak' ups the ante with even more gorgeous, smooth electronics, and 'Seed Of Steel' vibrates in the air, marvellously circumspect, before we get to the last track, a wonderful remix of ST's previously Monotonik-released 'I Met A Girl With Butterfly Wings', only this time the girl is echo-strewn and distant and inspired and electronic and just so evocative, thanks to the marvel of the Planet that is Boelex.

beautiful and evocative ep.
this is one of my favourite netlabel releases of recent months! begins dark and forboding but soon evolves into something beautiful and atmospheric, full of unfolding vistas of vibrant, shimmering sounds. planet boelex strikes the perfect balance of peaceful ambience with just enough sparkle to stimulate your imagination and keep you going. the remix of 'girl with butterfly wings' is a wonderful re-invention of an already excellent song. a perfect dreamy ending to this beautiful new release. i can't wait for more! ossi tells me he's aquired some new tools and i'm really looking forward to the results. put this one at the top of your list!
